Check out my hook collection!!!

Last week I bought a Spool cabinet on Ebay.  I have wanted one for a long time with glass front drawers to display my antique hook collection.  The bottom drawer needs a new piece of glass and I used some antique restorer on  it after cleaning it up.  Most of the time they cost way more than I wanted to pay---I got this one for $77 plus $55 shipping.  What a deal!  Here it sits in its new home filled with my hook collection.  I also received my rug hooking magazine yesterday with an article on old hooks---how timely.

Enjoy these pictures.

This is the bottom drawer and has newer hooks---the rest are old ones.

Wool from Friday's dyeing---a fun, but sweaty day.  so glad the weather turned cooler!

Tomorrow I am running in a Labor Day 5 K---supposed to get down to 50 degrees tonight!  Heaven!

My daughter and her husband got two new kittens yesterday.  They are so cute...I'll post a picture later...gotta run now as i am on y way to go see "The Help".

Have a great day!

    Love the spool cabinet. What a great deal and the perfect place to display your wonderful hook collection. Your collection should be in RHM!!!
    Good luck on your 5k. You are one heck of a woman/hooker!!! I give you SOOOOO much credit.
    Hugs :)

  2. Wow - what a great collection of hooks! But I'll bet you have one or two favorites that you use all the time, right? LOL I have a small collection myself, but nothing at all like yours (at least not YET!) Thanks for sharing all the photos so we could enjoy seeing them.

  3. Be sure to click on the pictures for an up close view of some of the really old ones---I especially like some of the ones in the second drawer.

  4. What a wonderful collection and a great idea on how to display. I have some in a wooden bowl.

  5. Anita,
    What a fun collection and such a cool case to display them in!
